My MIL is in an ALF for 3 months. She would call here numerous times a day. I would always pick up - at first - to try to reassure her and answer any questions she had. My idea was to support her all I could, then taper off as she got involved in activities there. I started the taper/weaning after a month, seemed like she was doing OK, but this month it has ramped up. I have decided not to pick up on all calls, especially the very early morning ones, hoping she will learn that's not a good time. Afraid she'll start calling even earlier. Early this morning, another phone call where she is crying, begging for me to call her, accusing me of not caring how she's doing because ONE day went by where she didn't talk to me. I don't know if I'm doing the right thing or not by not taking all her calls. I simply cannot be on the phone with her all day long. How should I handle this situation?
